We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.
Our annual $25,000 prize is awarded to a cutting-edge idea that holds the potential to catalyze progress in behavioral health.
Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.
We provide funds at below-market interest rates that can be particularly useful to start, grow, or sustain a program, or when results cannot be achieved with grant dollars alone.

Training school personnel to identify and support children at risk for serious emotional and behavioral disturbances while recognizing the influence of a trauma is a promising solution for efficient and accurate identification of mental health risk in schools.
The pilot program provides consultation and technical assistance via teacher training in 1) universal screening for mental and behavioral risk, 2) use of data to determine type of service delivery, and 3) group interventions. This program is working to increase availability of evidence-based preventative, mental and behavioral health intervention, as well as improve access to such approaches for vulnerable children and families via technical assistance and professional development for educators at the William Dick School in Philadelphia.
